It shows the church how to change the way it responds to abuse victims and perpetrators in its midst." "Often the role of religion in abuse is denied, ignored or not taken seriously. Yet, if churches are to be fully sensitive to the issues surrounding the abuse and its victims, they must better understand the way religion is often the contextual fabric of abuse, both as cause and in healing. This book can change the way churches respond, thus allowing them both to help more people and retain members and believers."--Jacket." ;
